Go For Gold

Hello everyone! There's a new challenge up at Poppystamps and the theme for this month is Go For Gold!

For my card I decided to use gold embossing powder for the gold theme. I started by die cutting the sentiment from white card stock, smooshing Versamark over it, sprinkling it with gold embossing powder and heat setting it. By doing this I know that all the gold on my card matches perfectly.

For the background, I took a piece of white card stock and used the Memory Box Raymelle stencil with Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon.

I used Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac and Picked Raspberry to colour some white card stock. I die cut the butterflies from this, stamped the delicate body images in Versamark and gold embossed.

I took the Versamark ink pad and dabbed it around the edge of the stenciled piece, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set. This adds a visual definition between the panel and the black card base without needing another layer of paper.

To finish off the card I added some black gems.

The Go For Gold challenge lasts all month so you have lots of time to submit your projects and at the end one person will be randomly chosen to win some Poppystamps products.

I can't wait to see your creative projects!

Silent Snowflakes

Happy New Year crafters! There's a new challenge starting today over at Poppystamps and it's called Silent Snowflakes. A very appropriate theme for where I live. We've had lots of snow already and I know there's going to be a lot more before spring.

For my card I took the Ava Snowflakes and die cut a bunch from water colour paper and adhered them to a water colour panel. I misted the panel and sprinkled on a few Color Burst and Brusho powders, spritzed with water again and just let the swirling magic begin.

I took the Marais Snowflake (which has beautiful stitched details) and die cut it from silver glitter paper and from vellum. I offset the snowflakes and layered the two pieces and used a couple of mirror snowflake embellishments to finish it off.

Now it's your turn to join the challenge and create a project. The challenge runs all month long and there's always a great prize for a random winner. For all the details  and to see the projects created by the other designers stop by the blog here. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Happy crafting!

12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2016 Challenge

I'm back with probably my last tag for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. There's just not enough time to make all the tags that I would like!

For this tag I was inspired by the sketch on day 7 and Melania's use of gold.

I created stripes with two different shades of green using water colour paint. Using one of my fave wreath stamps from Wplus9 I added gold berries with Delicata ink and accents with gold glitter glue.

For the sentiment I used my Dymo label maker and I wanted just a pop of red so I added a cardinal to the wreath.

Hope you have a crafty weekend!
